The sweet, ripe almond nut is cold-pressed to ensure that its precious ingredients – including vitamins, minerals, trace elements – and its high unsaturated fatty acid content will be preserved. The almond’s rich nut oil is yellowish in colour, odourless and tasteless.
Almonds contain, among other things, vitamins A, B and E and minerals. 100 g of almonds contains approx. 520 mg phosphorus, 266 mg calcium and 3.8 mg iron as well as numerous trace elements such as zinc, copper and potassium. Almond oil contains approx. 65% partly polyunsaturated fatty acids and is therefore known as a classic oil for gentle skin care. Palmitic acid promotes the absorption of nutrients by the skin, making it soft and smooth. Vitamin E protects the skin against environmental damage. Due to its extraordinary combination of nutrients, sweet almond oil is one of the most valuable care oils, and is particularly well-suited to baby skin care. The pale yellow oil moisturizes the skin and keeps it supple and protected. It promotes circulation and has a soothing effect on irritated skin. It is suitable for all skin types but particularly helpful in the treatment of dry, sensitive and rough skin. How does almond oil work in natural cosmetics? Almond oil is a very mild, gentle oil for sensitive skin, and a real all-rounder. Almond milk ensures that nourishing ingredients work right into the hair and make it smooth and soft. It also promotes balanced moisture.
